Oh … hi! (Updates)

IMG_6679Hello.  Again, I’ve been neglecting this site a bit… Oops.  But I’ve been busy with a few new projects.  Starting some collaborations with experimental filmmakers Eva Kolcze and Mikel Guillen, and working with choreographer Yvonne Ng on one of two pieces she’s debuting in May (one that I’m scoring and another that I’m sound-designing).

I was also in Edmonton and Whitehorse (pictured above), where I was touring the piece Body 13 with MT Space (and with co-composer/ musicians Germaine Liu and Colin Fisher).  In Whitehorse we also teamed up with Gwaandak Theatre to workshop some of Patti Flather’s play Paradise a disturbing yet humane, nuanced and intelligent piece.

At any rate I thought I’d share some various pieces of news.

1) My album Gardens will be coming out later this year on Scissor Tail Editions (owned / operated by the excellent Dylan Golden Aycock (AKA Talk Westcheck out his new album on Preservation).  Here’s a video teaser I made for the third track:

2) March 9th I’m playing with my good pal John Kameel Farah at Marcel Aucoin and Michael Holt’s roaming house concert series the Piano Salon.  Here’s a Facebook event with all the relevant info.

3) March 22nd I have a new piece being played by up and coming Toronto ensemble Musica Reflecta at the Tranzac.  The bill also features work by some of my favourite musicians — Thom Gill (writing for chamber orchestra!), Jason Doell, Christopher Willes.  The show will also feature performances by Colin Fisher and Ryan Driver Event invite is right here, and unlike many chamber-type concerts the door is CHEAP.

Coming up I’m also playing a show at with Ido Govrin, Christine Duncan and Tilman Lewis at Hart House, the New Harbours series in Hamilton, curating a show for the Music Gallery … Stay Tuned!
